From the Winnipeg Sun:
New wrinkle in drug dispensing
The innovative work being done in an L-shaped building outside Winnipeg is about to transform the pharmacy business in Canada. So predicts Darren Chalus, general manager of Stream Pharmacy Solutions, the country's first automated dispensing facility.

"With one pharmacist we're able to fill upwards of 3,000 prescriptions in an eight-hour period, where a (regular pharmacy) could fill 200 during that time," Chalus said in an interview from the 12,000-square-foot plant in Homewood, which is about a 45-minute drive southwest of Winnipeg.
